A Complete Timeline of Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly's Twin Flame Romance

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly, né Colson Baker, are undoubtedly the “It Couple” of the moment. Reviving the rock-and-roll romance, the twin flames have been compared to Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee, Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain, and Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thorton — but this grungy-glam couple is putting in the work to make their passionate, all-consuming love last.

Intense from the very first moment the couple locked eyes, their relationship has involved cosmic connection, manifestation, binding rituals, holistic drug trips, collaborative creation, a lot of blood, and even more sex. Fox and Kelly are star-crossed lovers, but they’ve revealed their relationship has tested both their limits and caused them to reevaluate several aspects of their lives — especially Kelly, who seems to have been positively influenced by Fox in a multitude of ways, from his mental health to his drug use. The pair are working to learn and grow to create the life they feel they’re destined to live together, and they appear to be stronger than ever as husband-and-wife to-be.

Whether you can’t get enough of the duo’s soul bond or you’re too morbidly curious to look away from their ostentatious public displays of affection, we’re here to deliver a full timeline of every defining moment — at least that the public is aware of — of Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly’s whirlwind of a romance. Buckle up and prepare to get lost in this solar flare of a romance.

March 2020: Fox & Kelly Meet


A post shared by the Blonde Don (@machinegunkelly)

In the months leading up to Fox’s separation from Beverly Hills 90210 star Brian Austin Green, she and Kelly met on the set of Midnight in the Switchgrass in early March 2020. On March 11, Kelly shared the first photo linking the two on his Instagram: an unassuming shot of their cast chairs set side by side.

The indie thriller’s production shut down on March 16 in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, but rumors began to circulate that the two actors were still spending time with one another.

May 15, 2020: Fox is Spotted With MGK in His Aston Martin

The swirling rumors picked up speed when Fox and MGK were spotted together in the musician’s Aston Martin on May 15, 2020. Daily Mail captured photos of the two in Calabasas, picking up takeout and then heading to Fox’s gated community.

May 20, 2020: MGK Releases ‘bloody valentine’ Music Video Featuring Fox

The dating rumors were practically cemented when Kelly released the music video for his single, ‘bloody valentine,’ starring himself and Fox, who plays his devious, domineering girlfriend. In the video, Fox is seen duct-taping MGK’s mouth, tying him up as her hostage, stepping on his face, and lovingly force-feeding him a donut before replacing the tape over his mouth and planting a teasing, sultry kiss on his covered lips, among other devilishly steamy scenes.

The intimate nature of their characters’ roles coupled with their Instagram posts teasing the video and sharing behind the scenes had the public convinced the two had to be dating, but the confirmation was yet to come.

June 15, 2020: Fox and Kelly are Spotted Holding Hands and Kissing

On June 15, 2020, Daily Mail delivered the much-anticipated hard evidence that Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly were indeed a couple with a variety of photos of the pair holding hands and kissing outside of Mr. Furley’s Bar in Sherman Oaks, California.

Later that same day, MGK tweeted a lyric from ‘bloody valentine,’ “i’m calling you girlfriend, what the fuck,” adding “life imitated art on that one.” He didn’t outright say “Hello world, Megan Fox and I are romantically involved,” but that was basically what he implied on the bird app, and with new photos of the two circulating, it was pretty obvious that they were more than just castmates and friends at that point.

June 17, 2020: Us Weekly Confirms Fox and Kelly are Officially Dating

Less than 48 hours later, Us Weekly confirmed Fox and Kelly had become official, with a source sharing, “Megan and MGK have gotten more serious and are officially dating and referring to one another as boyfriend and girlfriend.”

July 22, 2020: Fox and Kelly Give Their First Joint Interview




A post shared by Randall Emmett (@randallemmettfilms)

Appearing as guests on Randall Emmett and Lala Kent’s podcast, Give Them Lala… With Randall, on July 22, 2020, the couple dove into the beginnings of their astrological connection.

Kelly, Emmett, and Fox all worked on Midnight in the Switchgrass together, with Emmett directing the film. On his podcast, Fox shared her initial reaction to Baker being cast in the film, saying “I could feel that some wild shit was going to happen to me from that meeting, but I wasn’t yet sure what. I just felt it like, deep in my soul, that something was going to come from that.”

She also recalled that within just a few days of filming together, she could feel a powerful connection with Baker. “I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame. Instead of a soul mate, a twin flame is actually where a soul has ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time. So we’re actually two halves of the same soul, I think. And I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away.”

While Baker shared he didn’t have quite the same certainty about a potential relationship with Fox, he did recall waiting for her to arrive on set every day, hoping “to catch one glimpse of eye contact.” He continued, “She would have to get out of her car. There were like, five steps between the car and the trailer, and I would just sit there and hope.”

July 28, 2020: The Couple Makes Their Relationship Instagram Official




A post shared by the Blonde Don (@machinegunkelly)

Everyone knows a relationship isn’t official until it’s posted on social media, and on July 28, 2020, Fox and Kelly partook in the modern declaration of love by posting their first mirror selfie on MGK’s Instagram. With a moody, slightly pink-hued filter and their tongues playfully sticking out, his caption read, “waited for eternity to find you again…” with a few of their now signature emojis, including a heart, a cosmic swirl, and not one but two knives. And, of course, the musician tagged the photo’s location as “The Universe.” Romeo and Juliet could never.

August 5, 2020: Fox Took Her Turn to Make it Insta-fficial




A post shared by Megan Fox (@meganfox)

Fox couldn’t let the public think her relationship with Kelly was a one-way street on his part, now could she? Confirming that she was in it just as deep as him, Fox shared a black and white mirror selfie on her own account with the caption reading, “Achingly Beautiful Boy… My heart is yours” with some knife and heart emojis (obvi). You can feel the passion and fervor behind her words — their intense declarations confirmed that their romance is indeed one for the stars.

August 14, 2020: MGK Makes It Very Clear He’s Serious About Fox

During an appearance on BuzzFeed Celeb’s Thirst Tweets, Kelly made it abundantly clear to the world that he only has eyes for Fox — then, now, and potentially forever.

In response to a fan tweet asking him out on a date, he responded with “I’m locked in already right now. No dates for me. Probably ever.” Another fan hilariously tweeted “I would let Machine Gun Kelly suck my toes maybe,” which Kelly flavorfully declined with “Like I said, I’m only sucking one pair of toes.”

September 10, 2020: Kelly Reportedly Meets Fox’s Sons

Fox shares three sons — Noah Shannon, Bodhi Ransom, and Journey River — with her ex, Green. On September 10, 2020, Us Weekly reported that MGK, who has a daughter of his own named Casie Colson (moment of silence for how cute it is that she shares Baker’s legal first name), had met the boys.

Although this was a major step in Fox and Kelly’s relationship, a source shared, “MGK and Megan aren’t seriously talking about getting engaged, married, or having kids right now.” Slow and steady wins the race in this twin flame entanglement.

September 23, 2020: MGK Opens Up About Falling in Love With Fox

In a September 23, 2020 interview with radio host, Howard Stern, Kelly shared a bit about his experience with love and how falling for Fox was different than anything he’d experienced before. The musician admitted that he “didn’t know what [love] was until [he] and [Fox] made eye contact.”

He continued, sharing that he and Fox fell for one another while he was in the process of creating his album, Tickets to My Downfall. “That was my first experience with being open to love and stuff like that. I definitely wasn’t set up to believe that that’s something that could ever exist.”

While Fox realized the power of their connection sooner and with more intuition, it’s clear that Kelly also felt how much stronger their relationship seemed than any other romance he’d experienced before.

The following day, E! News shared another insider’s knowledge of the couple’s relationship development: “They see themselves as soulmates and life partners. They are taking steps every day to build on that. Machine Gun Kelly has met her kids and is becoming a part of their lives. She wanted to make sure it was going in a serious direction and they both feel very strongly that it is.”

November 17, 2020: Fox Describes Their Relationship as a ‘Once in a Lifetime Thing’




A post shared by NYLON (@nylonmag)

Nylon published an in-depth interview with Kelly on November 17, 2020, when he made an appearance as the publication’s cover star. While the article primarily focused on him, Fox was mentioned several times and also gave a few quotes about their relationship.

A “once in a lifetime thing” and a connection of “mythic proportions” are phrases she used to describe their romance. She went on to share, “Loving him is like being in love with a tsunami or a forest fire. The intensity of merging with him is just overwhelming, and the threat it poses is so powerful but so beautiful that you have no choice to surrender with reverence and with gratitude.”

Fox also spoke about her ability to see through Kelly’s bad-boy persona, recognizing its roots in childhood trauma he experienced and thus a need to protect himself. While his act is convincing to most, Fox felt that she saw the real Colson Baker on the set of Midnight in the Switchyard, sharing, “I looked into his eyes [and] I felt the most pristine, most gentle, most pure spirit. My heart shattered immediately and I just knew that I was fucked.”

November 27, 2020: MGK Talks About Fox’s Positive Influence on Him

In an interview with Dave Franco for Interview Magazine, Kelly opened up about how Fox has helped him prioritize and work on his mental health. He shared, “When you have a partner, mine being Megan, sitting there with you on those dark nights when you’re sweating and not being able to figure out why you’re so in your head, to help you get out of your head and put it in perspective, that really, really helps.”

Kelly also spoke about going to therapy for the first time to help him separate his two identities, Machine Gun Kelly and Colson Baker. He shared, “The commitment to change is inspiring, and I think will reverberate through the universe and definitely through my family. I can see it already with the people around me. The willingness to finally be happy with my own self has invited a much more vibrant energy around us than before.”

Although they seem to be into knives and blood and dark romance on the surface, there’s clearly no denying that Fox and Kelly bringing out the best in one another as well.

January 29, 2021: Engagement Rumors Swirl

While in New York City on January 29, 2021 for Kelly’s Saturday Night Live appearance, Fox was seen wearing a large ring on her left-hand ring finger — you know, the finger. Rumors quickly began circulating that the couple may be taking the next step in their relationship by getting engaged, but a source shut down the speculation.

“They are very serious and plan on spending the future together,” the insider told People. “There will be an engagement at some point, but they are not engaged now.” They also reminded the public that Fox and Green’s divorce was still in the process of being settled, implying that Fox wasn’t interested in beginning another marriage when her first was yet to be legally ended.

This wasn’t the first instance of engagement rumors running wild about the couple — in December 2020, another source shared the following with Entertainment Tonight:

“MGK totally sees marriage in his future with Megan and friends could 100 percent see them getting engaged within the next year. [However,] Megan doesn’t think about getting engaged [or] married and she doesn’t put a timeline in place and it’s not something that really crosses her mind.”

Kelly’s post featured a few unseen photos and videos of the couple together, as well as a photo of one of their now more infamous moments: a necklace housing a drop of Fox’s blood, which according to his caption, he “wears around his neck.”

Fox’s post featured more BTS photos and videos, along with a heartfelt poem that described the passionate and all-consuming nature of their relationship:

“there goes my heart
manifest outside of my body
draped in the towering silhouette of a most unusually handsome boy

magical and haunted
kinetic and tortured
ethereal and dangerous
creative genius

the journey will likely be perilous
but there is no destination without him

happy valentine’s day rehab barbie”




A post shared by Megan Fox (@meganfox)

Her declaration of love and commitment to him came off the back of more engagement speculation just 10 days prior, with a source telling Entertainment Tonight, “An engagement could be in Megan Fox and MGK’s future and same with having kids together. MGK definitely wants both of those things, but Megan is a little hesitant right now. In the meantime, they are constantly laughing together and always have the best time.”

A black-dyed tongue, which he showed off by touching it to Fox’s.

Fox shared her own post on IG, not of the duo, but of her glamorous, Barbie pink look. Her caption reads “Daddy Issues Barbie” with a sparkly pink heart emoji — Kelly added “daddy loves you” in the comments.

Just days later, the couple made an appearance at a Barstool Sports’ party in Westfield, Indiana ahead of the Indianapolis 500. While MGK was on stage, the crowd chanted Fox’s name until she joined Kelly, and she remained on stage until he finished performing his song.

He’s so much more balanced and so much happier when she’s around… She has blended so well into his life. His friends love her. She gets along great with his daughter. Even though things between them moved really fast, this isn’t a case of something that is just lust. They have a deep emotional connection. It’s real love.”

September 12, 2021: The Twin Flames Looked Hotter Than Ever at the VMAs

The women introduced their partners’ performance, with Fox saying, “I am a huge fan of this next performer.

Earlier in the evening, Fox posted a photo of herself and Kelly in a classy-looking public restroom with the caption “Daddy’s gonna win a VMA.” And, to add to the growing stack of tongue-touching photos, Fox, Kelly, Kardashian, and Barker posed side by side, both couples locking lickers in the very same restroom.

October 11, 2021: The Couple Takes Their Deep and Devilish Romance to the Cover of GQ




A post shared by Megan Fox (@meganfox)

Fox and Kelly’s first joint magazine cover hit the pages of GQ on October 11, 2021. Channeling gangster-vampire Bonnie & Clyde vibes for the cover’s photoshoot, their cosmic chemistry is palpable with a single glance at any one of the photos.

The couple discussed their relationship and its intensity at length, with Fox revealing they had technically met once before they more officially met on the set of Midnight in the Switchgrass. A few years prior, the two were introduced at a party in LA. Both swear they didn’t actually see one another, with Fox musing, “I don’t remember your face… And I definitely would have remembered his face. I just remember this tall, blond, ghostly creature and I looked up and I was like, ‘You smell like weed.’ He looked down at me and he was like, ‘I am weed.’ Then, I swear to God, he disappeared like a ninja in a smoke bomb.”

When they more formally met in 2020, Fox recalled, “It was obvious from second one what it was going to be.” She continued, sharing, “[I was] definitely open [to] love, but I did not anticipate walking right into my soulmate like that. I was obviously over the way I had been living, and those paths lined up, those doors opened. It was [as if] all the obstacles that had kept us apart all those years [had been removed] and we were able to finally intersect.”




A post shared by Megan Fox (@meganfox)

She went on to explain what makes their connection as strong as it is: “I’m an unusual person. And I had buried a lot of that because it didn’t have a place to live. That’s something that, meeting him, it’s like meeting your own soul’s reflection. I recognize so much of myself in him, and vice versa, and that locked-up part of me that I had put away. I’d always felt like there was that thing missing, that I’d given up on, that you’re always seeking. But then you meet the person that completes that for you and you’re like, ‘Oh, this is what my heart was searching for. That’s what that beacon was this whole time.’”

After musing about how much Fox has positively influenced him, Kelly also adds, “It should be light, but also we go to hell with each other. It’s ecstasy and agony for sure… I don’t want people to think anything’s perfect with us. I didn’t say it was the darkest fairy tale for no reason. God help you if you would’ve met us last Saturday.”

Fox expounded a bit on Kelly’s statement in an Instagram post of their cover, with the caption saying:

“the tale of two outcasts and star crossed lovers caught in the throes of a torrid, solar flare of a romance featuring:
feverish obsession
lots of blood
general mayhem
tantric night terrors
binding rituals
chakra sound baths
psychedelic hallucinations
organic smoothies
and the kind of sex that would make Lucifer clutch his rosary.”

MGK announced their engagement on his Instagram as well, sharing a video of the engagement ring he had custom created for his bride. He explained the meaning behind the design, sharing, “beneath the same branches we fell in love under, i brought her back to ask her to marry me. i know tradition is one ring, but i designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birth stone) and the diamond (my birth stone) set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love.”

I’m also four years older than him. So, I think I made him. My thoughts and intentions grew him into the person that he is, who knows what he would’ve looked like or been like if it wasn’t for me.”

She also clarifies the infamous comment about the couple drinking one another’s blood post-proposal, explaining, “So, I guess to drink each other’s blood might mislead people or people are imagining us with goblets and we’re like Game of Thrones, drinking each other’s blood. It’s just a few drops, but yes, we do consume each other’s blood on occasion for ritual purposes only.”

She was like ‘I got this. I understand what this character is.’ She improvised and brought [her character] Kennedy to life, and I’ve heard a lot of people say that that’s their favorite character in the movie. I’ll always collaborate with Megan. I’m madly in love with her — and I’m also a fan.”
